Ecosystem Function, EF-01: Anthropogenic changes in shallow water biodiversity affect ecosystem services

adeline.piot@gmail.com

 

The main objective of this PhD is to understand how changes in biodiversity due to anthropogenic activities can affect benthic ecosystems.

The specific thesis aims project are:

  1. Use an experimental approach to alter macrofaunal biodiversity to evaluate the importance of this factor on sediment composition and nutrient and oxygen fluxes at the water-sediment interface
  2. Evaluate a real-world example of how direct changes to biodiversity on/in benthic sediments (the farming of Pacific oysters and Manila clams, respectively) influence the benthic environment.


This project is included in CHONe theme II. The last part of my PhD research has been done in collaboration with Leah Bendell from Simon Fraser University (British Columbia).
